I did not have a backup domain controller for my network. I have a server with windows 2008 R2 on it. It is only acting as a server for my phone system by Shoretel. After a scare of almost losing my Primary DC I decided to turn the Phone server into a backup DC, Backup DHCP, and Backup DNS. (I reserved .02 - .100 ip's for PDC and .101 - .255 for BDC for the DHCP)
Also I gave the BDC a static IP address and pointed itself to itself for the DNS and Pointed it to the PDC as the backup DNS Server.
Ever since then i noticed i have had issues with logging into the Shoreware Director. It is internal web base software. I click on the icon to launch it, and it launches windows explorer. The error I'm getting is HTTP 500 Internal Server.
Also when i launch NSLOOKUP from command prompt I get
Default Server: UNKOWN
Address: : :1
I'm thinking this is a DNS issue, but not sure cause I can access the network and see other computers. Also I can access the internet without a problem. I could also remote desktop the server by its name.
Any ideas what could be wrong?
